I don’t have personal experience to go off but I know that the term “morning” sickeness is somewhat of a myth, meaning it can actually come at any time day or night. It doesn’t matter when you were sick yesterday, it can change and be a different time today.  It varies on a day to day basis. As far as spotting, my rule of thumb, even though it is normal in early pregnancy, is that if it concerns you or anything else for that matter, it is always best to consult your MD ASAP.

I think the throwing up is normal…I’ll still get nauseated every once in a while but I would contact your doctor about spotting. While it IS common BUT if you haven’t experienced it before it’s good just to check to make sure everything is okay.

Sounds like morning sickness to me, but you shouldn’t wait until Monday. Just call the dr today and tell them what’s going on because of the spotting.

I know I was hesitant to call the doc when I was spotting, but I was SO thankful that I called. Just pick up the phone…that’s what they are there for ๐Ÿ™‚

On the bright side, it sounds like your hormone levels are good if you’re puking like that. So hopefully that means the spotting isn’t anything serious

Well, spotting you should talk to your doctor about definitely but as for the puking….well, for me it’s been different every day.  I am nauseous most days, feel good rarely, can sometimes eat, sometimes can’t, sometime keep food down, sometimes don’t…it’s a crap shoot.  Last night I made it through 4 bites of salmon before it came back up and I couldn’t keep anything down until this morning.  All that to say the puking happens and it’s crafty and constantly changing! 

For both definitely hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.  I know sometimes drinking water makes me feel worse, but it’s so necessary for us pregnant chicks!

“Morning” sickness is a LIE! It doesn’t care what time of day it is! I was puking every 45 minutes or so when I was pregnant with my oldest, all 9 months. I lost 20 pounds, managed to put that back on, and only gained 6 on top of it. She was 5lb 14oz when she was born. She’ll be 4 in July and is only 30 pounds now! My doctor assured me that it was completely normal to be sick like that but it is extremely nerve-wracking. As long as your doctor isn’t worried about it, I would say that you should be okay. I hope it stops for you at some point!

For the spotting, I agree with everyone else- it doesn’t hurt to call and ask. I had my period (sorry for the Too Much Information but by period, I mean my usual week and a half, I swear I’m gonna bleed to death period) for 2 months before I found out I was 9 weeks pregnant with my oldest and I was TERRIFIED! (I swore up and down that my unborn child hated me by scaring me half to death with that and then making me puke for the rest of it) Even if the spotting is nothing, you wiill still have peace of mind about it. Best of luck!

@sand dollar: I know you’re trying to help, but people like me who haven’t experienced morning sickness get really concerned (mostly for no reason) when people claim that your hormone levels are better IF you are puking.  Those of us with no symptoms get just as concerned as those puking all day.  Now I’m all worried that my hormone levels might be low.

@firsttimemom:  I have no idea about hormone levels.  Seems like something easy to ask your doc if/when you call to talk to them about the spotting.  Smile

@Miss Sapphire:  I know how you feel. I have not had ANY morning sickness, but I hear that some people are lucky and don’t get that symtom. I don’t wish I was vomiting BUT there are days that I wish I had some more clear signs that I was pregnant ๐Ÿ™‚

@firsttimemom:  She was saying that you are probably fine because women throw up when they are pregnant because of the homomones. So puking makes her think that you are still being affected by the hormones…and that’s a good sign. I don’t think it’s a matter of having high=heathly vs. low=unhealthy horomones. more a matter of looking for good signs that you are still pregnant. And as sad as it sounds…puking sounds like a good sign. Though NOT puking is CERTAINLY not a bad sign ๐Ÿ™‚

I think pregancy books and websites give us these “typical” symtoms and if we don’t have them we think something is wrong. I know I have been very guilty of that. I guess we just need to remember that what we are being told are like “common side effects” but because we are all different, we will all react differently to pregnancy.
